Beautifully Restored 1967 Mustang Fastback

I respect owners who choose to restore their cars to the original factory specs. In this case, here’s a glimpse of how one particular ’67 Mustang Fastback would’ve looked 55 years ago when it was brand new, and the keys had just been handed over to the lucky new owner. This impressively restored Mustang is located in Brooklyn, New York and is for sale here on eBay. As of this writing, 34 bids had pushed the top bid up to $41,100.

1967 marked the first restyling of the hugely popular Mustang, which was coming off a record sales year of over 607,000 pony cars sold in 1966. The Mustang’s 1967 sales brochure put it best: “How do you improve on a classic? How do you add excitement to an American original – an original which is already the most exciting, most acclaimed new car in history? With subtle body changes and interior improvements.” Those subtle body changes included growing the Mustang’s overall length 2″, a more pronounced grill opening, simulated air scoops on the side coves, and the biggest change: a cool rear end treatment with three curved taillights on a concave indention panel. The seller doesn’t share any history or this car’s story but says the Mustang has been restored to original factory specs, including its Burnt Amber paint (Code V) with the Saddle interior (Trim Code 2F). Based on the photos, it’s hard to argue with the seller’s claim that,  “The body is in beautiful shape, as are the floors and trunk. Everything in the car is in good working order.”

It’s also hard to argue withe the seller’s description that “The interior looks and feels like it just rolled off the showroom floor.” I can’t remember seeing many ’67 Mustangs with this Saddle interior option but I’m digging it. The seats, carpet, dash, steering wheel, door panels, and everything in the the provided photos looks great and very inviting.

And check out the rear compartment. Sure, that back seat may not have offered the most comfort or leg room, but it looks cool and you gotta like how the horizontal pattern from the front bucket seats is carried over into the back.

Under that Burnt Amber hood is a clean engine bay housing a 289 cu-in V8. This was the 2bbl, 200 hp C-Code V8 option that powered many of the 572,121 Mustangs that left the ranch that year. Nothing is shared regarding a rebuild, only “She starts right up, runs and drives great.”  Although sales dipped slightly in 1967 (down 6% and probably a result of more competitors named Camaro, Firebird, and Cougar), Fastback sales actually doubled to 71,042. I really like the look of this Mustang and agree with the seller’s closing statement: “Overall it’s a great car that always draws a crowd wherever it goes. Not a perfect museum car that needs to be hidden from public, but something you can be proud to own and enjoy driving as well.”

    Sure looks like that right front torque box is rotten; undercoating scares the bejeezus out of me, some of it looks suspect. But for 41 large i’d inspect every square inch. Also the floors and plenum. its from Brooklyn New Yawk, heart of the rust belt. Plus the seller has made the bidding private; he may have a world of scammers bids. Good luck and happy motoring

      Just for the record, 1967 Mustangs (and Cougars) do not have a right front torque box. They only have a left side torque box. The right side was added for the 1968 model year.

    Would not have had those wheels when brand-new, though, as those Magnum 500s came a bit later. ’67s still used the ’65-’66 type of styled steel wheel.

    Nicely done, prices must be cooling a little on ’67-68 fastbacks. Seems like when the “Bullitt” mustang sold a couple of years ago for $3 million, people were paying crazy prices for them afterwards. This one is really nice and I think the winning bidder got a great deal.
